Fantasia Barrino is a Literary Troublemaker


The jig is up, Barrino. We've never been all that fond of you, but this stuff isn't helping your rep:

1. The AI winner confessed to Kim Green, who ghost-wrote Barrino's biography, Life is Not a Fairy Tale (Simon & Schuster), that she couldn't read or write (or review Green's chapters in progress for accuracy, etc.) When Green brought the info to the publishers and attempted to get herself credited as a co-writer--in order to avoid a nasty situation in which Barrino would be outed as illiterate--they refused. And Green was paid a mere $45,000 to write the book, which is now a NYT non-fic bestseller and became a Lifetime movie. Barrino wouldn't even comp her free tix to her Atlanta show. Bitch!

2. She talks shit about her dad. A whole lot of good that does. Live and learn, Fantasia. And STOP wearing coordinated camo button-downs + newsboy caps. CHRIST. America may have voted, but who the fug is dressing you, Ryan Seacrest??!

We're out.
